Wart, DNC protesters, Balloon Boy Dad, and now . . .

City Council underwear protester!
David Lane, a Denver attorney who has tackled some of the most high-profile cases in Colorado, is now working with a Boulder man who was arrested during a recent City Council meeting.

Lane said he is working with Seth Seth Brigham, a local activist who was arrested Feb. 16 after stripping to his underwear and launching into a biting criticism of two council members during public comment time.
Seth Seth? Lane goes from strength to strength.
“We're looking at Seth Brigham's case and we're thinking about whether or not we should file a lawsuit,” Lane said.

Lane, who has represented former University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill and Richard Heene, the Fort Collins father of “Balloon Boy,” said Brigham might have a case against the city.

“It appears to be a First Amendment violation, but we're not filing a lawsuit at this moment," he said.

Brigham was arrested after he refused the orders of a Boulder police officer — who acted at the direction of a councilman — to leave the speaking area before his two minutes were up.
Considerably less than the 15 minutes Warhol posited.
